Everyone has heard Oasis's Wonderwall. It seems to be played almost every time a high school or college band aims for a slow song. It's almost always acoustic, and almost always overplayed. Some remote tribes deep in the jungle probably interrupt their ceremonial song and dance to sit around a campfire and hear one of their buddies try an acoustic version of the tune.
But have you ever wondered what the band thinks of all the covers?
SPIN Magazine did an interview in 2008 with Oasis's Noel Gallagher. While Noel, who wrote the lyrics of Wonderwall, did not comment on the covers as a whole, he did mention one cover specifically in a very positive light:
...We've never got it right. It's too slow or too fast. I think Ryan Adams is the only person who ever got that song right. I'd love to do the Ryan Adams version, but in front of 60,000 Oasis fans that wouldn't be possible.
